71.6% of all NERC Fines for the May 26th Period Were CIP Related Violations
The NERC fines for the May 26th period are out and 71.6% of all financial penalties were CIP related. This is a clear indicator that registered entities are having troubles with CIP-004, CIP-007, CIP-008 and CIP-009. There were fines for all of the other CIP requirements, but the four mentioned requirements seem to be the biggest headaches. We have also heard from NERC and FERC that Registered Entities are still not completing their Internal Compliance Programs as directed by FERC.
